On Thursday, November 4, trading in the euro ended in decline. The euro fell in price against the dollar by 0.49%, to 1.1555, the pound - by 1.38%, to 1.3490. The Briton was the main underdog among the major currencies. Collapsed to 1.3469 after the Bank of England meeting.

The two, along with Catherine Mann, also wanted to lower the £ 20bn government bond purchase target to £ 855bn. They believe that the procurement should be completed by the end of the year.
